MSC Cruises announces a second ship in the Mediterranean

MSC Cruises announced on 1 March 2021 that MSC Seaside will be deployed in Europe for the first time since her launch in 2017, joining the Company’s flagship MSC Grandiosa in the Mediterranean from 1 May.

MSC Seaside will be undertaking a brand-new itinerary featuring seven -night cruises calling Genoa, Valetta in Malta and Civitavecchia with two first time ports of call, Siracusa in Sicily and Taranto in Puglia.

MSC Seaside will implement for the protections of its guests and crew MSC Cruises’ health and safety protocol that has been tried and tested since August 2020.

Measures will include universal testing at embarkation as well as mid-cruise, weekly testing of crew, social distancing, the wearing of masks in public areas, only protected shore excursions as well as enhanced deep sanitation and ongoing cleaning procedures.

MSC Grandiosa’s current itinerary will be extended through to the end of May with the ship calling at the Italian ports of Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo as well as Valetta in Malta.

MSC Grandiosa has been welcoming guests for a holiday at sea from August of last year and has since safely and responsibly carried more than 40,000 guests. MSC Seaside and MSC Grandiosa itineraries are currently available to residents from Schengen countries and Bulgaria, Croatia, and Romania.
